"A gun-toting robber who stuck up a south area convenience store was shot early this evening by one of the employees, a Sacramento sheriff's spokesman said. The unidentified gunman had entered Hite's Market on Fruitridge Road near Mendocino Boulevard just before 6 p.m., according to Deputy Jason Ramos. After the robber left the store with an unknown amount of cash, the two employees in the store chased him outside and exchanged gunfire, Ramos said. About 20 minutes later, a man with a gunshot wound showed up at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center on Bruceville Road, according to Ramos. Ramos said investigators showed store employees a photo of the robbery suspect and that they were later able to confirm that it was the suspect who wound up at the hospital with the gunshot wound."
